      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. First, get your frying pan on the stove, drizzle with olive oil and use paper towel to wipe it over the pan. (Save the paper towel)
    I find doing this first and letting the oil sit on the pan, seems to allow you to avoid that not so good first pancake.

    *If you have olive oil spray, you could use this instead.

    2. Place quartered bananas, yoghurt eggs, vanilla essence and oil in bowl and mix speed 4, 20 sec. Repeat if bananas aren’t fully mashed.

    3. Add flour, baking powder, sugar, chia seeds and salt to your wet mix, and mix speed 4, 30 seconds.

    4. Heat your pan on medium then reduce heat to a low-medium heat.
    I find a lower heat and slightly longer cooking time results in fluffier, better cooked through pancakes.

    5. Add a bit more oil to the pan and lightly spread with the reserved paper towel. (Do this between each new batch)

    6. Pour your pancakes and flip once you see bubbles forming on the surface.

    7. Each side should be golden.

    8. We love these plain, so does our 1yo, but you could serve them with maple syrup, berries or your favourite topping.

    I also like to top the left overs (if there are any) with peanut butter for a healthy protein snack.

If you would prefer a thinner pancake, mix in 100 grams of your preferred milk at the end for 15 seconds at speed 4.

If you’re like me and like to eat the pancakes as you cook them, try to leave them for about 5 minutes to cool as this will give them time to fluff up.
If you have ever cooked a fresh loaf of bread before, it’s the same idea... if you cut into a fresh loaf of bread too soon, it won’t be as fluffy as it would have been if you left it to cool a little.

    Thanks for the recipe. Very yummy.
    I didn't add any sugar and used coconut oil instead of olive oil.
